Orange County Insurance Fraud Explained

Essentially, any insurance claim filed that has false information on purpose to have the insurance company pay an individual is considered fraud. California severely punishes those who willfully commit insurance fraud. Some examples are:

-Claiming a vehicle is stolen to collect on the automotive insurance

-Claiming a fake disability

-Faking a car accident as well as an injury

-A doctor billing the insurance company for a service that the patient didn’t even undergo, also known as “phantom billing”

If an individual is charged with insurance fraud in California, they may face penalties that include fines of up to $50,000.
